By Rochester Falcon Watcher MAK

Today started with a fiery sunrise which faded quickly behind clouds as the morning turned overcast with a temperature of 11 (F) -12 (C)

After starting the day with that spectacular sunrise I got to see both Billie and 99 on the northwest corner -she was on the roof and he was above her on the railing.

img_0004-billie-and-99 img_0007-993 img_0007-billie1

The sun left us after a couple minutes and it was back to gloomy skies. Buffalo Billie and 99 were looking to grab some breakfast on the fly as they took off to the south with 99 leading the way as Billie watched then joined him. They didn’t return in the few minutes that I waited for them.

img_0010-992 img_0010-billie

img_0014-billie-and-99 img_0015-99-leaving-as-billie-watches

I moved on to downtown and from the Broad St. Bridge (BSB) I spotted a falcon, whom I believe was Beauty, on one of the northwest corners of Bausch & Lomb (B&L) eating with her back to me. I took a chance by deciding to go up on the South Ave. garage roof for closer viewing but as luck would have it when I got up there she was gone. After a look around on the east side of the river I went to check the elevator shaft of OCSR from Bragdon Place. Lo and behold Dot.ca (DC) was up on the south side ledge in the same spot and positioned the same way as when I left him yesterday. He’s so predictable!

img_0018-dc1 img_0021-dc1

I left the boy to nap in his man cave with food in his crop as I went out in search of the Beautyful one. I didn’t have to go far-as I was pulled over on the Andrews St. bridge I spotted Beauty on the top ibeam northwest side of OCSR. Of course her back was to me as I pulled over on State St. across from the Rochester Plaza Hotel to share space with her.

img_0029-beauty2 img_0033-hi-beautyful

Beauty looked like she had food in her crop too so I imagine they both ate up on B&L before I got downtown this morning. Beauty was also napping at times with her head tucked in behind her shoulder then she would preen a little and so forth.  I decided to leave them to it at 9:10am and end my watch-Beauty left me with this parting shot.

img_0034-pooperazzi-on-duty

Now after that and seeing all 4 Rochester Peregrine Falcons how could I leave without smiling! :)

I didn’t see any falcons at Seneca Towers this morning when I left or when I returned home from my downtown watch. I found Beauty on the top ibeam southeast side of OCSR from the Broad St. bridge after checking the OCSR elevator shaft and finding nobody up in there. I first went to Bank Place and Aqueduct St. in the hole to check her out.

img_0003-beauty-from-bank-place-aqueduct-st

When she turned her back to me I went over to the Radisson Hotel by Main St. for a better angle on the Beautyful one.

img_0005-beauty2

I still wasn’t happy so I drove over to Graves St across from OCSR and next to Aqueduct Park for a view from below. I arrived just in time for a pooperazzi shot! lol

img_0011-pooperazzi-strikes-again img_0015-beauty1 img_0017-a-feather-in-her-beak

I expected Beauty to take off after that but she had other ideas, as in preening and pulling little white down feathers from herself. This went on for most of the rest of my watch as she was really doing a bang up job of preening in the sweet sunshine.

img_0021-a-whole-lotta-preening-going-on img_0022-beauty img_0038-beauty

Around 8am I decided to look for Dot.ca (DC) and I didn’t have to go too far. I checked the north side ledge of the OCSR elevator shaft first, then down to Bragdon Place to check the north side ledge where I found him. I had to park up the hill further than I usually do to keep track of Beauty over on the top ibeam as well.

img_0050-location-shot-from-bragdon-place img_0040-dc2 img_0047-beauty-from-bragdon-place

The cold temperatures really messed with my camera today making it hard to stay focused so not too many pics good enough to post but that’s ok you get the picture right!? lol I left them to resting and preening as my feet were frozen thus ending my watch early at around 8:45am, but I was still smiling as I drove off! :)

By Rochester Falcon Watcher MAK

It was snowing with a north wind blowing and a temperature of 13 (F) -11 (C)

Click on the pics to see the full version

As I made my u-turn on Seth Green Drive to face Seneca Towers I spotted falcons on the south end of the building. I went back to my parking lot and as I stopped the car they left-1 from the top window ledge and the other from the southwest corner. They headed up river to the south and didn’t return. Off to downtown I went, where I found Dot.ca (DC) on the north side ledge of the OCSR elevator shaft from the south side of the Radisson Hotel.

img_0002-dc-hiding-out-in-man-cave img_0003-dc1

I watched DC for only a few minutes after he moved to the back of the ledge and turned his back to me. I then checked the south side ledge from the north side of the hotel for Beauty, but she wasn’t there.

img_0006-dc-tucks-in-on-north-side-ledge

It wasn’t until 8:30am that I found the Beautyful one on Xerox from Woodbury Blvd.-she was on the 6th south side column over from the southeast corner.

img_0007-beauty-from-woodbury-blvd

I drove over to Chestnut St. by Martin Luther King Jr. park to get a better look at her as she was looking for a meal to fly into her space. Beauty also did some preening as the snow fell on her like it was just business as usual, which for her, it is!

img_0008-beauty-on-xerox img_0012-beauty3

As I was tweeting about her nonchalant demeanor with the cold and snow she left the building. I left and had a look around for her, stopping for coffee on my rounds before checking the elevator shaft for DC again. He was still up there and tucked in further than when I left him earlier. I then went to the Andrews St. bridge where I spotted Beauty over on the south side arch of Kodak Office. I drove down to State St. and parked below her to share space with her for a few minutes.

img_0020-beauty-on-ko img_0024-beauty-looking-for-breakfast img_0027-beauty2

Beauty was all foofed up to stay warm as the northerly wind blew up her feathers. I left her there at 9:15am and ended my watch after stopping by the Lower Falls below the Driving Park bridge on my way home. They were mostly frozen but the river was still flowing down over the ice in spots.

img_0028-lower-falls img_0029-frozen-falls img_0030-beautiful-falls

After seeing all 4 Rochester Peregrine Falcons and a lovely scene of frozen water falls how could I not be smiling!? :)

No falcons at Seneca Towers when I left this morning but when I got home 99 was on the south end top window ledge with a full crop. I had to go take care of some business and when I got home at about 2pm both Billie and 99 were on the same windows at each end facing each other. I had no camera with me at that time but I got a couple pics of 99 from earlier.

img_0050-99-with-a-full-crop img_0053-99 img_0054-99

On to the downtown part of my watch-I didn’t find Beauty and Dot.ca (DC) until 8:30am as I was heading east on the Court St. Bridge. They were both on the west side of Bausch & Lomb-DC on the northwest corner and Beauty farther down heading toward Archer’s corner.

img_0010-beauty-and-dc img_0014-dc1 img_0017-beauty1

They just stayed perched that way for a while, both looking around their surroundings and at each other.

img_0022-bdc1 img_0024-beauty img_0027-dc3

DC walked back away from the corner out of sight for a couple seconds then returned to the corner and at 8:34am Beauty flew over to the corner behind DC. I think all this might have had something to do with food but can’t say for sure. Today’s snippet movie includes both of these activities.

img_0029-beauty1 img_0030-beauty-lands-behind-dc img_0031-bdc

The Beautyful one also walked back a few steps then came back to the corner and tried to “Shake it off” lol as DC watched her every move from over his shoulder.

img_0032-bdc img_0033-beauty-shake-it-off-shake-it-off-lol img_0035-dc1

My camera battery had been flashing that the charge was low and I was trying to hold out until after they took off but I chose to change it out with a new one before it died all together. Of course while I was doing so Beauty and DC checked out on me so I had no idea what direction they flew off to. I took a ride around downtown and after no luck stopped to get some coffee at the Main and State St. Tim Horton’s. As I was walking to my car, I spotted DC on the northeast corner of Widows Walk with his back to me. I drove over to Broad St. and parked in front of the Ebenezer Watts building where fellow falcon watcher and good friend DebbieH works. From there I could see Beauty was on the southwest corner across from DC.

img_0039-bdc img_0040-dc1 img_0042-beauty img_0045-location-shot

Once again they snuck off while I wasn’t looking as I tweeted out their whereabouts. Some days are like that! After another trip around downtown I found DC up in the OCSR elevator shaft on the south side ledge.

img_0048-dc img_0049-dc

This is where I ended my watch at 9:30am. It seems that the theme these days is together-Beauty and DC plus Billie and 99 are all staying close to each other getting ready for the coming season of courtship and bonding. This makes me smile! :)

Sunday Afternoon Falcon Watch - 1/25/16

January 25th, 2015

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

Today I started my watch at 12:30 pm and ended it at 3:00 pm.  It was much colder today, but the bright sunshine made up for the bitter cold 17 degrees (F), especially when sitting in my car.  lol  It lightly snowed on and off.

My watch started at Kodak Park West, where I found no falcons.  I headed downtown and pulled over on the Morrie Silver Way to check out the Kodak Tower from the west side.  I immediately spotted two falcons on the tower.  Beauty was on the southwest corner of the launch pad and Dot.ca was just below her on the southwest corner of the playpen netting.

You can click on any pictures you would like to see larger.

I found a spot to park my car on State St in front of WXXI.  From there, I had a better view.

First Beauty and then Dot.ca took off.  They both circled the tower and landed on the south side of the launch pad.

At 1:30 pm, Beauty and Dot.ca took off again, this time heading south fast.  I made my way to the Broad St Bridge and found them both up under the southeast wing on the Times Square Bldg. (TSB)

There was yet another function at the Blue Cross Arena (aka the Rochester War Memorial) and Broad St was filling up fast.  I left Beauty and Dot.ca up on the Times Square Bldg soaking up the sun.

My watch continued at Seneca Towers where I found two falcons on top of the building at the south end.  I was not able to positively ID them, but it certainly looked like Billie and 99.  They were close together just like Beauty and Dot.ca had been.

After seeing both pairs of Rochester Falcons, I ended my weekend falcon watch by checking out Russell Station on my way home.  No falcons there.  It’s been a long time since we’ve seen a falcon there.

I’ll leave you with a few pictures from my travels.  Have a nice week everyone and keep warm!  Spring will be here before we know it!

As has become my first check in the morning when I get downtown, there was nobody in the OCSR elevator shaft but I did spot Beauty on the top ibeam southeast side of OCSR from Bragdon Place. She had her back to me so I went to the hole parking lot to get a front view.

img_0008-beauty1 img_0009-beauty1 img_0010-beauty2

Beauty was looking around and preening when the sun poked its head out for a few minutes and shone down on the Beautyful one and I.

img_0013-hi-beautyful img_0015-beauty-preening img_0017-beauty

A bunch of house sparrows were entertaining me on the Aqueduct building for a few minutes, chattering and chasing each other around.

img_0023-sparrows

Then at 8:15am Beauty flew over to Times Square (TSB) coming to rest under the southeast wing where she kept looking down toward the nest box.

img_0025-beauty-takes-off img_0026-beauty-heading-right-at-me img_0029-beauty-flies-off

Little did I know Dot.ca (DC) was at the nest box as I would find out a couple minutes later when I received a tweet from cam watcher, Annette, saying he was there. Oh these guys can be so sneaky!

img_0034-beauty2 img_0035-beauty img_0036-beauty2

Beauty didn’t stay up there for long, as she flew off, I lost her behind the Thomson Reuters building and then I believe it was DC I saw flying above the Philipone building. I thought it was Beauty and at the time was thinking, gee that looks small like DC! Then he left my field of vision out over the river and as I looked over toward OCSR I spotted Beauty fly up into the elevator shaft. I drove over to the Radisson Hotel by Main St. to see which ledge she was on-north side and that’s when I noticed DC on the top ibeam southeast side.

img_0039-beauty1 img_0046-dc-aka-whitey

At first, Beauty and DC did some preening, then she went way back on the ledge and showed her back. Meanwhile, DC stopped preening and started looking south.

img_0049-hello-down-there img_0054-beauty-hiding img_0060-dc

While DC continued to look south Beauty moved out from her hiding spot a little bit around 8:45am.

img_0063-dc img_0064-beauty-preening

I thought for sure DC would join Beauty but he turned his back to me and seemed to get settled in on his ibeam as Beauty was comfy up on her elevator ledge. I decided to end my watch and go get comfy at home leaving downtown with a falcon fix smile! :)

Saturday Late Morning/Early Afternoon Falcon Watch - 1/24/15

January 24th, 2015

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

They promised a bit of sun, but when it came, it didn’t stay out long.  So my watch conditions were cold (temps mid-20’s), damp and overcast.  That’s January in Rochester for you.  lol

I started my watch at 11:00 am and ended it at 3:00 pm.  I made the rounds, starting at the west end of Kodak Park.  No falcons there, but I was happy to see a beautiful adult Red-tailed Hawk hunting over the field in front of me.

My next stop was the BS location.  All was quiet, except for a few noisy Crows.

On my way downtown, I stopped on Exchange, south of the Times Square Bldg (TSB).  From there, I could see both Beauty and Dot.ca.  They were on the TSB, Beauty below the NE wing and Dot.ca (DC) under the SE wing.

I moved on to the Broad St Bridge which was quickly filling up with Razor Shark fans.  Beauty flew over to join Dot.ca on the southeast wing ledge.  Both had very full crops.

I got out of my car to check out the river, which was half iced over.  The gulls were enjoying it, but I saw no ducks.

While I was watching the life on the icy river below, Beauty took off and flew over me heading east.  She flew past the old Midtown Plaza.  A few minutes later she returned, landing next to Dot.ca on the TSB.

Beauty approached Dot.ca and spread her wings.  She launched herself from the building and flew south over Cornhill. Moments later she returned and knocked Dot.ca off his spot.

Dot.ca flew to the OCSR and up into the elevator shaft.  Before I left downtown, I checked on Dot.ca and found him on the north ledge of the elevator shaft.  I left him there and Beauty on the southeast wing ledge to continue my falcon search.

I drove past Hawkeye and saw no falcons hanging out at the nest box located there.  So I continued on to Seneca Towers.

There I found a falcon eating on the northwest corner.

From the north side of the building I saw a 2nd falcon, waiting patiently for a bit of food.  Assuming that this was Billie and 99, Billie was the one with the food on the corner and 99 was the one waiting patiently.

I left them to their dinner and continued on.  There was no falcon at Russell Station and no Snowy on Buck Pond.

I was very happy to have seen all 4 Rochester falcons.  All was peaceful and quiet.

As I got settled in my spot on Seth Green Drive I spotted 99 on the northwest corner of Seneca Towers. I could only see about half of him but I think seeing half a falcon is better than none!

img_0001-992 img_0002-99 img_0008-991

At exactly 8am 99 flew south and so did I to get downtown and see what Beauty and Dot.ca (DC) were up to this morning.

img_0009-99-heads-south img_0010-991 <Click >img_0011-twin-99s

Nobody was in the elevator shaft so I took a ride around and found Beauty on the Bausch & Lomb building as I was on Broad St. returning from the east side. She was on one of the northeast corners just finishing up a meal as she started feaking soon after I pulled over next to Midtown.

img_0013-beauty-with-food-in-her-crop img_0015-beauty-feaking

Beauty continued to clean up and when she was ready flew off to the west toward Times Square (TSB) while I was taping her. I followed behind and found the Beautyful one on the corner of the deck next to the main cam near the nest box. I went down to the hole after also spotting DC above her under the northeast wing of TSB.

img_0018-beauty-on-deck img_0022-dc-under-wing

A minute later Beauty went up on top of the main cam and this is how it stayed for the next 45 minutes or so.

img_0023-beauty-on-main-cam img_0024-beauty-has-something-to-say img_0025-beauty1

DC remained pretty much motionless except for moving his head once in a while to check out his mate below-he had his back to me from where I was located.

img_0030-bdc img_0035-dc img_0036-beautay

I went for coffee and of course Beauty left while I was gone-I didn’t know if she left the building or went into the nest box so I drove up on the Broad St. bridge where I could see if she was in it. She wasn’t in the nest box that I could see so I took a ride around downtown to find her with no success. I went back to hang out with DC for a little longer, parking in the lot next to the TSB below him. He stretched a couple times and I thought he might take off but instead he settled in to relax some more.

img_0039-dc-stretching img_0040-dc-from-below

I ended my watch 2 hours after I started it at 9:40am leaving a quiet falcon world which always puts a smile on this falcon watchers face! :)

It was an overcast morning with light wind and a temperature of 26 (F) -3 (C) to start

Click on my pics to see the full version

No birds seen at Seneca Towers this morning so I got downtown a little earlier than I have been lately. I went straight to Bragdon Place to check the elevator shaft but I didn’t see any birds there either. As I was coming down Main St. I spotted Beauty on the base of Mercury so I went down to Aqueduct St. in the hole to share space with her.

img_0003-beauty-eyeballin-something img_0005-beauty1

I could see that she didn’t have anything in her crop so she was in hunt mode as she was watching something below Mercury.

img_0008-crank-that-neck-up img_0009-beauty

Right around the 8 o’clock hour Beauty flew off the other side of the base out of sight, so I wasn’t able to see what direction she took off to and I could only get her tail and the tip of one wing as she left.

img_0012-beauty-flies-off-the-other-side

So, I made the rounds checking from the bridges and driving around to the east side without success-no Beauty or Dot.ca (DC). As I was checking the elevator shaft from the Radisson Hotel near Main St. I did spot a falcon on the northeast corner of the Kodak Office launchpad, so off I went down State St. I was able to identify it as the Beautyful one arriving around 8:20am.

img_0014-beauty1 img_0016-beauty1 img_0019-beauty1 img_0021-beauty

She was actively looking around at her territory for about 15-20 minutes before she turned toward the south and flew off headed in the direction of OCSR.

img_0024-taking-off-for-ocsr

I took off right behind her and when I reached Bragdon St. I found who I believe was DC because of the bright white I was seeing on the head and neck.

img_0025-dc img_0031-dc3 img_0033-dc1

I then went down to the south end of the Radisson Hotel to check the north side ledge and there was one tucked up in on that ledge as well with its back to me-so I tweeted that was Beauty but it could have been the other way around.

img_0034-beauty1

At any rate, both Beauty and DC were up in the OCSR elevator shaft safe and sound. It was just about 9am so I opted for ending my watch and getting on with my day. I left downtown smiling and content for having seen both of our beloved downtown falcons! :)

By Rochester Falcon Watcher MAK

A warmer morning with clear skies, sunshine and a temperature of 23 (F) -5 (C)

Click on the pics to see the full version

I had some difficulty finding a place to pull over on Seth Green Drive this morning since there were cars parked quite a ways down but I finally found a spot I could see where the trees weren’t in the way. I could see a falcon on the north side of the railing near the northwest corner of Seneca Towers but not well enough to identify it.

img_0002-maybe-99

I looked away and it was gone and then I noticed a falcon on the top window at the south end of the building so I went back to my parking lot to get a closer look-it was 99.

img_0005-99

99 flew off at 7:58am going around to the west side and headed north over the river.

img_0015-99

I left for downtown checking the OCSR elevator shaft first-upon finding it empty I scooted over to the hole and spotted a falcon with its back to me under the southeast wing of the Times Square building (TSB). I decided to go over to Exchange Blvd. in front of the Blue Cross Arena (BCA) to see who it was and to my delight there was another falcon across from that one. Beauty was on the south side of the ledge and a couple feet across from her was Dot.ca (DC) on the north side and he was eating something.

img_0022-bdc img_0024-bdc1 img_0026-bdc

DC finished soon after my arrival, feaked a few times and stood up so I could see that he had a pretty full crop and so did the Beautyful one, leading me to believe she ate first and he got the leftovers. Beauty then started feaking and picking at her talons while DC looked around.

They both had a look to the south then DC started stretching and picking at his talons.

DC spread out his tail a couple times and then he pooped.

Soon after, Beauty took off without warning at 8:55am. I didn’t see what direction she went because I was watching DC to see if he would follow, which he didn’t. He did however, watch her fly off and going by the direction he was looking she went east/northeast-probably to the elevator shaft.

DC caught a few winks then started picking at his talons again before standing up to stretch some more.

The sun was shining bright and DC turned to face it revealing his whiteness and settling down into a buddha position which meant he was settled in and not leaving any time soon.

It was 9:30am and time for me to leave-after seeing our downtown Peregrine Falcon pair hang out so close together I had to drive away smiling! :)
